World Thrombosis Day (WTD) is approaching soon on October 13. Thousands of activities will be taking place around the world (see here). Join an event in your community, plan your own or participate in the global opportunities below. 



World Thrombosis Day has six volunteer spots within the WTD Steering Committee available for ISTH members around the world.

World Thrombosis Day campaign depends on its steering committee volunteers to engage and advance the campaign’s mission to focus attention on the often overlooked and misunderstood condition of thrombosis.

Our volunteers help set the overall direction for the campaign and help spearhead events, urge to action regional groups/organizations, participate in speaking opportunities and advocate for thrombosis awareness on many levels around the world.
